Simply put, Dr. Bronner’s Hemp Castile Soap is Magic. Alone, in combination with other all-natural products, any way shape or form, it’s wonderful. It comes in liquid and bar formula. Castile essentially means that it is made with vegetable based oils instead of tallow (animal). So it is very vegetarian/vegan friendly!
In case you aren’t aware of the many uses of Dr. Bronner’s, I would love to share some with you. They tout it as being a 1 in 18 use soap. I will touch on the ones that I currently find most useful, but please, research this because it can be a huge money saver and natural to boot!
1. As in a previous post, I used part of a bar of the soap in my DIY Liquid Laundry Detergent. Which has continued to work wonders for me. If you don’t feel like going through the process of making the liquid detergent, simply put a few squirts in your laundry and let it go. I’ve been there and it works just fine.
2. Cleaning. One part liquid soap to 40 parts (I won’t lie, sometimes I use more soap) and add it to a spray bottle. Clean away! I clean everything from my kitchen to my bathroom. If you need a stronger concoction, just add more Dr. Bronner’s!
3. Bathing. Of course if you buy the bar of soap, simply use the bar. If you have the liquid, dilute and wash away. Keep in mind it does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, so may not “suds” as your other soaps do. You are still getting just as clean! You can also use it to wash your hair, but will want to condition (trust me).
These three are the reason I most commonly use Dr. Bronner’s. I tend to have liquid peppermint as well as a mild bar on hand and have had success with using both for all uses. If you are interested in researching, others use it for everything from toothpaste to deodorant.
Give Dr. Bronner’s a chance! It is a true wonder!
